| Enhanced all-in-one liquid superfood for soft, LPS, SPS, and non-photosynthetic aquarium corals
| Single part formula provides all the carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids and vitamins for coral vitality, growth and coloration
| Unique new formulation with added ingredients shows 15% more coral growth than the original 2-part formula
All-in-one liquid superfood delivers complete nutrition in an easy-to-use single-part formulation to help ensure superior coral vitality, growth, and coloration. Red Sea Reef Energy Plus Coral Nutrition improves upon the popular Red Sea Reef Energy AB 2-Part Coral Nutrition with additional ingredients to deliver all the necessary carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids, and vitamins coral need without losing efficacy. This unique new formulation demonstrates 15% more coral growth when compared to the original 2-part formula. Red Sea Reef Energy Plus Coral Nutrition is source of complete nutrition for soft corals, LPS corals, SPS corals, and non-photosynthetic corals.
Red Sea Reef Energy Plus Coral Nutrition is an organic complex of energy sources plus dissolved and suspended protein flocks available for direct coral consumption and absorption. Every component is utilized by your coral so Red Sea Reef Energy Plus Coral Nutrition will not introduce any unnecessary organic material to your aquarium system or cause your protein skimmer to over skim after feeding.
New single part formulation allows convenient use with automatic dosing units. Red Sea Reef Energy Plus Coral Nutrition can be kept unrefrigerated and unstirred for up to one week without compromising the efficacy of the combined components.
Please Note: Shake well before use. Refrigerate after opening to extend product life. To avoid spoilage, do not leave Reef Energy Plus unrefrigerated for more than one week and wash the dosing container with soapy water between refills.
Instructions for Supplementing Corals with Reef Energy Plus
- Treat your aquarium according to the most demanding even if not the most prevalent type of coral.
- The dosing charts are based on treating 100 liters / 25 gallons of water. Estimate your total volume of water (aquarium & sump less volume of live rocks etc.) to calculate the correct dosage for your system.
- Turn off the protein skimmer before feeding and leave off for 15 to 30 minutes afterwards. Leave gentle circulation in the aquarium at all times.
- Reef Energy should be added directly to the aquarium.
- For delicate corals (Sun Corals, Goniopora) give a mixture directly to the corals with a pipette. If you miss one or more days of using Reef Energy Plus do not add the amount that you have missed and resume the dosing at the current daily dose.
|Dosing Reef Energy Plus
| Daily Dosage ml/100l (25 gal)
The dosage chart is the recommended starting point for dosing based on a well-stocked aquarium; however, the dosage may need to be adjusted to the specific needs of your system.
Always monitor the visual appearance of your corals and check for fluctuations in nitrate and phosphate levels particularly in low nutrient tanks.
Typical signs of overdosing are the development of a grey/brown bio-film on the live rocks and outbreaks of algae.
Signs of under-dosing in a low nutrient system are bleaching of the corals from the base upwards.
The signs of over/under dosing the Reef Energy Plus supplements can also be related to other issues such as too high/low levels of nitrate and phosphate or over/under dosing of TraceColors elements. Before adjusting the dosing of the Reef Energy® make sure that all measurable parameters are at optimal levels.
- Refrigerate after opening.
- Good for up to 1 year after first use.
- To use with dosing pumps: Pour 1 week’s supply into a non-refrigerated dosing.
- Container each week and wash thoroughly between refills.
Reef Energy Plus Complete Coral Nutrition
Most of the corals in reef aquariums are considered to be photosynthetic in that they receive the majority of their energy requirements from their photosynthetic, symbiotic Zooxanthellae algae. In nature these corals derive approximately 85% of their energy from the Zooxanthellae and produce the remaining 15% in their soft tissue by metabolizing nutrients that are available in the surrounding water.
Non-photosynthetic corals (such as Gorgonia, Dendronephthya and Sun Corals) and other filter feeders derive all of their energy from nutrients that are in the surrounding water.
It is therefore essential to provide a balanced mix of the carbohydrates, vitamins, amino & fatty acids to meet the corals energy demands. The amount of coral nutrients required will be dependent on the type of corals stocked. The nutritional requirements of SPS corals in particular are dependent on the levels of algae nutrients (nitrate & phosphate) in the water. In reduced algae nutrient systems e.g. when using Red Sea’s NO3:PO4-X, the amount of energy the corals receive from the Zooxanthellae is significantly reduced and therefore higher levels of coral nutrients must be provided to meet the corals energy demands.
Reef Energy Plus is a single part, complete, energy efficient, coral nutritional formula that provides all the carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids and vitamins that corals need for vitality, growth and coloration. It includes all of the basic components of the original 2-part Reef Energy A&B plus a few more ingredients in a single improved formulation that allows them to maintain their efficacy when combined together.
In long term testing, this unique new formulation with the added ingredients shows 15% more coral growth when compared to the original 2-part formula.
Reef Energy Plus is an organic complex of energy sources and dissolved and suspended protein flocks which are available for direct consumption and absorption by the corals. Every component is utilized in the metabolic processes of coral protein production and soft tissue regeneration and therefore does not introduce any unnecessary organic material to the system.
Reef Energy Plus stimulates extension of the polyps and soft tissue, helping the coral to optimize nutrient consumption by expanding its surface area for absorption.
